Conclusions of the Seminar "Export/Internationalisation in Portugal 2020"

Investment in human capital, innovation and sustainable resources are the philosophy that guides JOMATIR in the way it architects the different transport solutions for its clients.

Aware of the importance of the different Operational Plans that materialize Portugal 2020 and especially the PO CI - Competitiveness and Internationalization, JOMATIR carried out, in partnership with AIDA, a seminar in Aveiro where relevant topics were discussed that made those present aware of the importance of the structures that the country has for the movement of exported and imported goods.

In the first panel, under the theme - Intermodality as the Competitiveness Factor - it was clear the importance of the freight forwarder as a catalyst for the correct use of existing infrastructures - dry ports; railroad and seaports, as exemplified by the growing use of TVT - Terminal do Vale do Tejo - as a logistics platform for goods from JOMATIR's client companies in the central area and from there forwarded by rail to ports in the north and, or, in the south according to the ship's route.

The presentations of REFER and CP CARGA representatives gave us an account of what these companies, (still) of the State, can mean for the transport of goods, reducing costs and improving the environment.

The second panel approached the Export/Internationalisation from a somewhat innovative perspective. It began by giving us some ideas of how the future of the EU customs policy will be, always thinking about the simplification and computerization of procedures (reducing context costs) and also addressing a topic that has its supporters and detractors: TTIP. This is a partnership agreement between the US and the EU which, according to some studies already carried out, will bring many advantages for both sides of the Atlantic, but also some drawbacks. The future will tell.

Still in this panel, besides having a very clear idea of what the world market of goods is in export (our competitors), but also in import (potential customers), the questions of where to export and even to whom to export were answered.

The example presented, on one of the most significant products of REVIGRÉS, showed the values and weights of EU exports, broken down by exporting and importing countries, not neglecting the customs duties to which they are subject at destination.

The representative of this company - Dr. Paula Roque - in addition to advocating a change in the conditions of sale, from traditional FOB to CIF, highlighted the importance of innovation in the competitiveness of its organization with positive consequences on sales to foreign markets of the highest demand.
